It seems Samsung has chosen Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as the venue to launch Galaxy S5. According to NYTimes, the event will be low-key as compared to last year’s Galaxy S4 launch.
Majority of the tech rumor mongers (bloggers) are surprised that Galaxy S5 is not going to come with a 5.25-inch Quad HD display (2560×1440). So that means that Samsung will have 1080p screen on the two successive Galaxy S series…disappointed. Going with the NYTimes reports, Galaxy S5 will come with a faster processor, a better camera (most are hinting at 16MP). On top of that, expect a new version of Samsung’s Knox security software.
At the unpack 5 event, Samsung is expected to also launch Galaxy Gear 2. With normal schedule, this should have been launched together with Galaxy Note 4 later in the year but I guess things are different this year. Galaxy Gear 1 has issues which need to be fixed immediately and it make sense for Samsung to announce the second iteration sooner rather than later
